The Pentagon says “oops we did it again!,” after they inadvertently shipped live anthrax spores to as many as nine laboratories. The labs were supposed to receive dead anthrax spores for research use.
The deadly spores were mailed from Dugway Proving Ground in Utah to government and commercial labs in Texas, Maryland, Wisconsin, Delaware, New Jersey, Tennessee, New York, California and Virginia.
